Once Upon A Time

    Number 2 of ‘It’s Your Funeral’ made the claim that the Observers do see and hear everything. The Village is a small enough community I suppose, but I find it difficult to believe that 7 Observers see and hear everything that takes place. 
There is one Observer who has attracted my attention for years.
   This is the chap, one of the 5 Observers who in ‘Once Upon A Time’ are released by the Supervisor as subsidiary personnel. Do you recognize him? He is a former interim Number 2 from ‘It’s Your Funeral,’ so now we know what happened to him after that, {this actor is named in my book ‘The Prisoner Dusted Down} demoted to an Observer. And yet on the other hand, he might have been an Observer who was chosen to act as an interim Number 2 before the camera in that episode, perhaps because of his resemblance to a previous Number 2 of ‘Chimes’ who was brought back for this episode. 
   That rocking horse, how is it perpetually moving? I guess an unseen member of the production crew has to give it a shove to make it rock before filming a scene, possibly during the scene.
      “We shall need the body for evidence.” Evidence for what? Was the Prisoner to be put on trial for the death of Number 2? Or was it a question of verification, evidence that Number 2 was in fact dead. As it happens Number 6 is taken to Number 1, while Number 2 is resuscitated and became like a new man, re-born one could say. Number 6, well he was faced with the truth, forced to confront himself with the realisation that he had been Number 1 all the time, and therefore responsible for the village and everything that takes place therein.
   But what if the canvas deck shoe had been on the other foot, that it had been Number 2 who had survived the ultimate test and not Number 6, what might have been in store for Number 2? Would he have been taken to meet Number 1, or simply have been put on trial for the death of Number 6, whose body would have been required as evidence!

Be seeing you
